This afternoon I was privileged to sit in on a masterclass for young aspiring conductors. Four of them aged from 15 – 24. I work for our national orchestra – this is one of the perks!!!
I write and edit a small quarterly magazine so had decided to take photos of the young conductors with my ‘point and shoot’ camera – the one I keep in my handbag. I kicked myself for not taking my big camera to such a special event – a lost opportunity!
Anyway, I moved round quite a bit – very quietly of course even though wearing my bikie boots- getting different angles, and while behind the piano my attention turned to the movement of Katharine’s hands. How to capture that movement. Not easy … but in this one image, everything excepting the hands, seems to be in focus.
